Although Samsung has proven its belief that older hardware shouldn't be updated to new versions of software, it has also proven it still will update the phones that are still available for purchase.
Two of those devices that are still purchasable (and upgradable) are the Galaxy Note and the Galaxy S II line. Today, the date on which the phoneblet and line of smartphones will begin to receive the update to Android 4.0 was leaked: March 1st.
Obviously, the exact date your device will get the update depends on a lot of different factors; the country in which you reside, your carrier, and which exact model you have will determine when your Samsung phone will be upgraded.
One thing that's the same across all devices will be the ability to update over-the-air or manually, so you might be able to update your phone sooner with the manual method versus waiting for the carrier to push out the update itself.[The Next Web]
